Burger King will be serving the nuggets for one week from today, and they are available via the eatery's app, in-house using a special code, or Deliveroo.

Burger King is celebrating World Vegan Day by adding a limited edition plant-based dish to its menu.

From today, for one week (until November 6) UK diners will be able to tuck into the fast food giant’s new Dirty Vegan Nuggets.

The chain’s popular meat-free nuggets, made by the Vegetarian Butcher, are covered in smoky BBQ sauce, and topped with crispy onions. A portion boasts nine pieces.

Dirty Vegan Nuggets are available in restaurants costing £3, using a special code found on Burger King’s app. They can also be ordered on the app, or via Deliveroo.

Vegan at Burger King

In recent years, Burger King has become more vegan-friendly, offering more animal-free options to diners.

The chain is currently running an all-vegan pop-up in Bristol (which will be operational until November 9) following the success of its meat-free restaurant in Leicester Square earlier this year.

Among the items on the 100 per cent plant-based menu are vegan burgers, nuggets, and other fast-food items.

Going meat-free

The vegan pop-ups, and veggie menu items are part of the fast food giant’s plan to become 50 per cent meat-free, and reduce carbon emissions by 41 per cent, by 2030.

Announcing the initiative earlier this year, chief executive, Alasdair Murdoch, said: “Adapting to customer preferences is a key focus at Burger King.

“We are committed to helping our guests make good decisions about what they eat and drink and providing them with informed choices.”

He noted that the move comes in response to the growing number of Brits looking for meat-free options.
